Morgan Freeman & Kamala Harris Permanently Banned From Russia, Along With Nearly 1,000 US Citizens
It looks like Morgan Freeman and Kamala Harris are among the list of U.S. citizens banned from entering Russia!
On Saturday (21 May), Russia’s foreign ministry released a list of 963 American citizens who are barred from travelling to their country due to their support of US-imposed “anti-Russian sanctions” nearly three months into Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Reportedly, the “stop list” includes US president Joe Biden, vice president Kamala Harris, US House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi, various journalists, and actor Morgan Freeman.
In a news release, the Russian Foreign Ministry said:
“In the context of response to the constantly imposed anti-Russian sanctions by the United States and in connection with incoming requests about the personal composition of our national ‘stop list’, the Russian Foreign Ministry publishes a list of American citizens who are permanently banned from entering the Russian Federation.”
According to Russia, the reason for banning Academy Award Winning actor Morgan Freeman stems from September 2017 when the 84-year-old
“recorded a video message accusing Russia of conspiring against the United States and calling for a fight against our country”.
